Baby Blue Courage

A young couple who live down the other fork of my dirt road had a baby a few weeks ago. Their first one died in infancy a couple of years ago and it was very, very hard. I'm so proud of them and their courage for starting again.

They have one huge celebratory blue bow on their mailbox in the otherwise nondescript row of boxes out by the main road. Possibly the biggest and perkiest looking baby bow I've ever seen.

Thank you for your sensitivity to those who have suffered an extraordinary loss. You must be a wonderful neighbor.

Thanks, Anon. Really I only pay attention from some distance. Wish I lived up to your view.
